Help! My Onan 5500 (gas) won't start. With a shot of starting fluid, used very sparingly, it runs for just a second.
Loosened the carb bowl drain and nothing comes out. I suspect the float needle is stuck.
Any quick fixes? Sure hate to have to pull it out.
It ran 2 months ago.

Sounds like what mine did last summer. The electric fuel pump for the generator was bad. After installing a new one it starts and runs like a dream.
